    Justice as we typically do it is passé and just really doesn't work.

    Wouldn't the xo joined twin at least have to be an accessory? They would have been somewhat able to prevent the crime by resisting. They twin not being able to kill them because of the joins organs?

    See, that's why the discussion is perfectly suited to a thread in TypologyCentral.

    That is what we are talking about.

    The law can't just say, "Oh, someone got killed/raped/abused, but we'll let it go."
    Exactly; well summed.

    Likely, but not necessarily. The other brother could be tricked and/or distracted.

    You would need to punish the head. For example... a steady diet of delicious treats for one and stale crackers for the other.

    To the OP: I just think of complicity to the crime. Surely the other twin could have done something to stop it...?


    Every time I think of conjoined twins, I think of what I perceive pervs think about. It's like I have a pervy alter ego conscience.

    So do you pervs think what I think you think? Or not.

    Assuming they both share vital organs, and that the death of one leads to an inevitable death of the other, what should happen, in your opinion?
    The implied difficulty here is that murder necessitates death as punishment. The whole problem seems to stem from thinking inside a tiny box. Is there no other solution?

    Imprisonment is an option, but that would mean imprisoning an innocent person.

    Not a very satisfying one, I guess.

    I have no idea what you're talking about, so no

    I don't understand conjoined twins. Who controls the body?
